This work was created to serve as a final university project. It uses a glorified documentary approach with which I was truly able to develop a connection with my subject matter, Joy, whom is a 90 year old still living independently. Since first meeting Joy I have spent a number of days with her, learning about her life, and gaining her trust. Seen as more of a friend than subject, I have genuinely enjoyed spending time with Joy. This project was heavily influenced by the work of photographer Larry Sultan and in particular his series titled ‘Pictures From Home’.
